Our history

Mummy’s Wish was founded by Queenslanders Bernadette Vella and Gayle Richardson who understand firsthand how daunting the doctor’s words “you have cancer” are when you are the primary carer of young children. Mummy's Wish delivers a unique and critical support service, refined and developed following the personal experience of its founders and the many mums hospitalised as a result of their cancer diagnosis.

Mummy’s Wish is a progressive not-for-profit that, in its 8 short years of operation has already demonstrated high levels of success in running an efficient, professional, caring and lean service helping mums with cancer.  Mummy’s Wish Inc is a registered Australian charity and has been endorsed as a deductible gift recipient since 2007.
